    Umm...Yup, she is. A fairly frequent one at that.


    Since I've been subject to such layoffs, It's really tough to hear. I've began to really consider that a career switch might be in the works just to get the security I need. Heck, even that isn't all the secure.

    Parkin seemed like a great guy and I enjoyed hearing from him more the Gertz. It' just seems way to buisness at Channel 8, and letting go of Parkin kind of seals it for me. He would fit better at 13 anyway. Metinka, get someone to smile for once over there could you. You may be the only left who actually does.

    Interesting they would cut Parkin and not someone who had been there a shorter amount of time like Slater, Jason's more expensive I suppose, still sucks for him.

    Re: KCCI cuts jobs

    I'm curious why it was Parkin instead of Karrick. How does that work in the TV business. Purely $$ or seniority? Is the morning person higher up the totem pole than the weekend person?

    Re: KCCI cuts jobs

    Damm I figured there are others that could go in other areas before JP. Hard to believe the station that has been no 1 in news in the market is cutting jobs.

    Well, you can look at it from the perspective that you are so marketable you are finding jobs even in this crap job market....plus you are freeing up a job for someone else!

    I may complain about my job quite a bit, but I don't have to worry about it going anywhere.

    Re: KCCI cuts jobs

    The question is, if WOI (Channel 5) ever make any staffing cuts, would anyone be watching to notice?

    Did anyone notice when Fox17 stoped their wreck of a newscast and 13 took over?

    Re: KCCI cuts jobs

    I'm wondering when the cuts at 13 are going to be announced. (no insider information, just bet they'll be next since everyone is cutting jobs, apparently)
